SUPERCLOUD - User-Centric Management Of Security And Dependability In Clouds Of Clouds

SUPERCLOUD researches and develops new security and dependability infrastructure management paradigm. The approach is on one hand, User-Centric for self-service clouds-of-clouds, i.e., customers can define their own protection requirements and avoid provider lock-ins. On the other hand it focuses on Self-Managed services for self-protecting clouds-of-clouds which can reduce administration complexity through automation.

SUPERCLOUD aims to fulfill the following objectives:

  • Self-Service Security: The implementation of the SUPERCLOUD architecture gives users the flexibility to define their own protection requirements and the ability to instantiate the policies accordingly.
  • Self-Managed Security: To ensure compliance with the security policies, an automatic security management framework gets developed that operates seamlessly over compute, storage and network layers, as well as across provider domains.
  • End-to-End Security: Trust models and security mechanisms that enable composition of services and trust statements across different administrative provider domains.
  • Resilience: A resource management framework gets implemented that composes provider-agnostic resources in a robust manner using primitives from diverse cloud providers.

The SUPERCLOUD methodology will be validated by testbed integration for real-world use cases in the healthcare domain, ranging from deploying a distributed medical imaging platform to running a full laboratory information system.
